Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival, Fabric Shopping, and Quilt Top Finishes

Doll quilt top finished for my 'grand muffin', 5" blocks.

My 'summer improv' top finished with final border, 30" x 38".

Panera Bread, this is where I ate lunch, I like their hazelnut coffee.

Jo Ann Fabric store, I stopped in here, I had some good coupons.

 Big selection inside.

Always great books and magazines at Jo Ann's.

Sharon Boggons' beautiful book.

Happy Tuesday! From the Renton, Washington highlands.
Where we enjoyed a cool sunny day.

My blog friend, Carin, aka Queenie Patch went to the 17th Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2018 with friends and has shared her photos here! . What a fabulous quilt show, stop in to see the beautiful quilts!

And to celebrate sunshine after about a week of clouds and rain,
I had to go out and enjoy the sun and do some shopping on the side.
While at Jo Ann Fabrics  I bought enough flannel to use as a design wall.
The floor is very hard on my knees.

This week I pieced together a doll quilt for my grand daughter, her birthday is soon. I was watching an episode of 'Man Sewing'  and saw Rob and his daughter, Ruby, so sweet, doing a tutorial for a doll quilt and it was so cute I had to sew one up.
I also sewed on the final border of my 'summer improv' small quilt top.

I got a few things done this week and some play time in.
Because if I don't get out of the house once in a while everything gets dark and grim.

I hope you're having a productive week and taking time out to play.
Where do you go to play?

I'll be by to visit.
